Country Life Snapshots

Today 80% of the American population live in urban areas, though cities themselves occupy only about 10% of the entire country territory. There is similar statistics in most of the countries around the globe. The biggest part of the Earth population has already migrated to cities with all its advantages, such as better prospects for work, healthcare, education, and entertainment, and drawbacks as poor ecology, noisy neighbors, and annoying lack of parking. However, we, those who failed to resist the temptations of urbanization, should remember about the other life that still goes its own way on the 90% of the territory, called rural or country area.

Country life is absolutely different from what city residents got used to – it has different pace of life, it offers more private area, cleaner air, and more chances to enjoy natural beauty. On the long run, country life is more sincere, because the man is closer to the nature, its wisdom, and to the valuable cultural legacy of the previous generations. Today we have prepared the gallery of country life pictures as our way to thank all the countrymen for their passion of living their own lives, even when the entire world goes crazy about fast food, movies in 3D, and glowing neon lights of big cities. And, of course, we would like to thank county people for all the organic food, excellent wine, and 50% of all the corn produced for our breakfasts… :-)

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
